#3252403 D Will says Panthers didn't reach out to him when his mother died

Posted by bigcatdaddy on 24 February 2015 - 09:13 AM

The only player who showed at the funeral was Greg Hardy. I don't know how to embed tweets but Person tweeted it about 20 minutes ago.


I know that's my point. Where was J-Stew or Tolbert? What about his neighbor, Thomas Davis? Shouldn't he care more about why these guys didn't come as opposed to not getting a call from JR?


#3241257 UNC Academic Scandal

You're all over it. I, too, agree that there's a systematic problem with education and student-athletes. If they were unprepared for college, yet still managed to miraculously get passing grades at UNC which Willingham (who herself is a documented plagiarizer and certainly has her own credibility issues) claims, then you've got to wonder how far back schools/school systems/teachers/advisers/etc have been making exceptions for them. People seem to neglect that important piece of information for some reason. And it's equally, if not more important. 

 

If the less than credible Willingham claims a student-athlete couldn't read while at UNC; how in the hell did that student athlete graduate MS & HS and qualify for ACT or SAT? Are you kidding me! 

 

People also don't realize that student athletes have lowered expectations while in college. I'm unsure if it's linear across the board or if it's exclusive to each public/private institution. It's not "maintain a 2.0" like it is in HS, IIRC. This is designed to relieve some of their school workload as they are busier with other stuff than just regular students. My buddy said at UNCC the basketball team only had to have like a 1.5 or 1.7 gpa do maintain eligibility. I can't confirm that - but I can confirm that if you can show up you can prob pull off a gpa like that. 

 

This sort of problem is really intriguing and their are so many layers to dissect and examine intelligently if you can process what's really going on and you aren't mentally limited to AW MAN DEM CHEATUN TARHOLES AND DEM FAKE CLASSES TAKE BANNERS AW MAN MY WIFE WENT TO CARUHLINA SO THAT MAKES ME A JUDGE AND PSYCHOLOGIST DEM CHEATERS AND DEM RAYUFFS LETS GO DUKE LETS GO DUKE EVEN DOE I WENT TO UNCCHARLOTTE. 

Says the guy who went to ECU but pulls for the heels. :lolu:

do I detect crippling NCAA sanctions on the horizon?   

From what?  Free high end rental cars or an 18 year long academic scandal?

It definitely helps SOS wise, which is always important.

If you think a win over Robert Morris is going to help your SOS we need to end this conversation now.

Are you guys really beating your chest's about beating Robert Morris?  Come on guys "quality opponent"?  Stop kidding yourselves, RM just lost to Lafayette at home by 27.  Don't get me wrong your bigs played great but RM is a small team and not very good.

Is 3,100 students a large percentage over the 18 years? Of course not. But most scandals similar to this revolve around a few guys off of one team, maybe 10 to 20 guys over a few year period. I think the Minnesota basketball scandal for instance was 20 players over 5-7 years or something like that.

3,100 students. The number may be small percentage wise when using 18 years and the total number of students...but that 3,100 is absolutely unprecedented. Arguing that it's a small number is missing the forest for the trees.


Minnesota was 18 players over a 5 year period. They were stripped of a final four and two other tourney appearances and had to return $200,000 in revenue, so compare that to 1,500 players over an 18 year period when they won 3 national titles in basketball alone.

I can't imagine what you were doing to make you too busy to being this up. I didn't think there was such a thing.

Come on man, I had kids to pick up at school then football practice.  They should know not to break a story like that on a Wednesday afternoon.




#2957095 Peter King busted

Posted by bigcatdaddy on 16 September 2014 - 07:55 AM

The best description and easiest way to understand a bench trial is it's like presenting your case to the grand jury to see if there is enough evidence to move forward and it is very seldom do you not get convicted at a bench trial.  The judges and prosecutors work together on a daily basis so neither one wants to really rock the boat which is why you can elect to have a jury trial if convicted.  My best friend was convicted at a bench trial for something he didn't do so he did the same thing as Hardy and took it to a jury trial where he was found not guilty.  It just sucks that so much of the media now are just lazy ass people and not real journalists.  People from Peter King, to Pete Prisco, to Michael Schottey don't do actual research they just latch on to what someone else says or writes and runs with it.  It's sad that these people actually get paid for the BS they spew.

If he wants his transcript so badly all he would have to do it return or pay for the school property that he kept (stole) and then he could easily get it, right? Why wouldn't he do that?

It sounds like a stall tactic that unc uses.  It's what they do, "we can't release the "official transcript" because he hasn't returned a library book.  unc will not admit to wrong doing they just want to keep passing the the buck and blame someone else.  They want to blame rogue tutors(Jenn Wiley), or rogue assistant coaches(John Blake), or rogue professors(Nyang'oro), or rogue faculty members(Mary Willingham), or rogue party promoters(Fats Thomas), or rogue athletes(McCants, MacAdoo).  Then if you can't blame someone else "play dumb", apparently roy doesn't know what "swapping out(grades)" means or what the term "paper classes" means.  He also doesn't keep track of grades or eligibility of his players nor does he try and monitor his players away from the basketball court.

I believe that RM is a POS and if he had the chance to cheat he would. So yes, I believe he took paper classes.

I also believe that every player who has adamantly said they didn't participate in fake classes didn't.

Soooo....what does that mean?
What happens next since the NCAA has already declared it an academic issue?

That includes Sean May of the Sacramento Kings, the Bloomington prep star and son of former IU star Scott May. Sean May entered the NBA after three years in college, capped by an NCAA title in 2005. He graduated last summer.

May said he started as a double major with communications, but dropped it so he could graduate faster after leaving for the NBA.

Afro-American and African studies, May said, offered “more independent electives, independent study. I could take a lot of classes during the season. Communications, I had to be there in the actual classroom. We just made sure all the classes I had to take, I could take during the summer.”

I'm waiting for the Walmart UNC fans to come in here and say this doesn't matter...since they have nothing at stake like attending a college that actively participated in academic fraud.

mrtd will be here as soon as his shift is over.




#2811300 UNC Academic Scandal

Posted by bigcatdaddy on 06 June 2014 - 08:44 AM

He hates UNC, I doubt he's been back more than three times since he's graduated.

Him and his parents hate the school, Williams, the basketball program etc...

I guess they're mad that their boy never panned out in the league.

Why do all these former players and faculty members "hate" unc so much?  I mean do you really believe all these different people associated with unc have gotten together and lied because they hate unc so much?  How many more athletes need to come out and back up what MW has said for unc fans to pull their heads out of the sand?

You gonna be sad when you get to watch him STROKE the three for the Hornets next year? Hopefully he takes Gerald Henderson's roster spot.

Nope as long as he stays out of trouble and pays for his own rental cars I will gladly welcome him to the Hornets.
